For questions like these two:

I feel a tag called could be added, used for when one is asking about difference between anime/manga/light novel adaptations. i.e., how much of a manga has a anime adapted or asking about content difference between a manga and light novel (like with From the New World).

While I can just make this tag myself, I was hoping to check whether making this tag would be of any benefit beyond just me thinking it would be good to have it in the mix.

    I don't believe such a meta tag is useful to have. I mean, what function do you believe such a tag would have on it's own, as compared to it existing in tandem with a series tag? Meta tags should be able to able to be used on their own w/o another tag. anime-production is a good example of this. Comparing differences between media with the same title should fall under the series title tag itself. If it's a question specific to the anime, then why not use the anime-production tag along with it?

  • Unrelated: Any idea what's up with spelling "manga" in camelcase? I've that happen sometimes around here, and am not sure where it comes from...

  • @JNat it's probably just a odd stylistic choice.

I'm not sure I personally see any value in a new tag; even though you're talking about two different forms of media, you're still talking about the same series.

For example, take How much does the Chuunibyou anime differ from the light novels?. The series still being referred to is still , and even though the anime and the manga are definitely not the same thing, the question is asking what the differences in adaptation are.

I don't really see users being experts or being able to contribute a lot of useful knowledge on adaptation differences in general, but I do see them being able to contribute adaptation differences on a specific work.
